if we trade gay it's coz the team is doing crap, so yeah, put fields in there and then get a rookie or FA in for next season. (probably a rookie.)

If Gay is traded I doubt he'd be the only one. Once trades start happening I'd guess we'd be getting a SF at some point in return.

those were the two main things that made me angry about him, if your going to be strictly a offensive player you have to have the full range of shooting and also the handles to get into the lane and create havoc otherwise whats the point of having the guy if he cant do that we would be better off with a 3 and d guy for 1/4 the price

This might be your best post, like, ever.

Only asterisk I'd add is that I'll wait to see how things go for him and the team in the actual season but yes things do look improved in the pre-season.

Your last paragraph/part is absolutely brilliant, if I do say so myself. Teams typically look for d and a 3 point shot from the wing but if the player is going to be mainly offensive then he must have full range of shooting as you pointed out and no sense of worry when he handles the rock.

Even though it may not end well and LF or he would not be on the team, but if things get bad start TR and give him a boat load of minutes. I do not want to see LF playing major minutes.

Really? I keep seeing a 2 minute Rudy Gay add on NBATV.

Touché.

RG and his PO will be a recurring theme this season. Also this season, what crazy new rotation will Casey choose next? Perhaps trot out the bench at the same time with no starter in the mix?- stay tuned. Directed by Michael Bay.

What happens if Demar becomes an all-star?

Carp would have nothing more to contribute. Bargnani failed - nothing to talk about, carp proven wrong. Demar succeeded (looking likely) - nothing to talk about, carp proven wrong twice.

Ross is just as bad if not WORSE than Fields. Landry has trouble shooting the ball but everything else he does on the floor (defense, rebounding, ball-handling, cutting) is light years ahead of TR.

If giving Ross "a boatlaod of minutes" is going to = him taking a boatload of stupid shots then I'd just as soon sit him on the bench.

You have to play Ross... you can't give up on a draft pick so soon. I get it, he isn't Drummond, but he's much more a part of this team's future than Landry will be given salary considerations.

This would be the worse time to trade him. He is a part of the future.

I've been a critic of Demar recently but I've been impressed so far. Looks like he's now committed to attacking off curls, instead of retreating and hoisting long twos like we've seen in the past so often. Seems like the majority of his FG attempts are from in or around the paint, exercising a more mature post game bolstered by great footwork and mature patience, or outside the arc (where he looks improved as well) which is very encouraging. In addition, on the other end, he's keeping his man in front of him. Looking forward to seeing how it translates to the regular season.

"strong interest" but "nothing that would entice."

It sounds like some teams are fishing and checking if Ujiri isn't in a "dump players for free" mode yet. Same as with Detroit's expirings for Gay offer.

If things get real bad, you'd prefer LF to play major minutes as opposed to a young kid who's an 8th pick who needs his minutes. Considering the direction the team would be going in if things were to get bad, I'd want to feed the young kid some minutes. DD got that experience his whole career yet TR can't possibly have the same opportunity to play though mistakes.
